4 - 4 1/2 star read. This was book #4 in Baldacci's Will Robie series and it was a very good read. Robie has two catastrophic incidents in his career as a government assassin. Told to take a break, he hears that his Dad has been arrested for murder. So Robie returns to Cantrell, Mississippi, the place he left behind. When he gets there, he starts to investigate but finds himself needing help. His fellow assassin Jessica Reel turns up and together the two of them find themselves fending off all kinds of bad dudes. The investigation into the murder of the man his father is accused of killing has stirred up a hornet's nest and both Robie and Reel need to bring their A Game in order to come out of it alive. A very good story and thriller.

Not one of Baldacci's best , and the ending was not up to Baldacci's usual standard, and became soapy and almost unbelievable, The last three or four chapters had a feeling of being rushed through by the writer.

This is my second Robie book, and I've listened to both.....book 3 had an amazing male reader and book 4's reader was not great....I got used to him, but.....anyway, I enjoyed the book, yet I don't believe people change that much in 20 years that you don't recognize them....a little hokey

Mr. Baldacci must have been under considerable pressure when it came to wrapping up this book. I am willing to suspend belief to some extent when enjoying fiction but the denouement of this book is beyond outrageous and certainly not worthy of a writer of his stature. Such a disappointment when I had read through the first 74 chapters with anxious anticipation.

agree with Happycanuck below. There could have been some great psychological tension in this novel but the plot was superficial. Nevertheless it is fast paced and there is satisfactory resolution, what one would expect from Baldacci

Disappointing.
After reading several Baldacci books this was unusual. It had an excellent story line and was the type of book that had you so hooked that you didn't want to put it down.
Then, after leading up to the last chapter, with "who don-nit" suspense it came unraveled and could have been written by a high school sophomore. Just a very weak ending.

Well written with a good pace. There were too many scenarios that were so far fetched that they were insulting to the reader's intelligence.
